Where Amazon Should Build HQ2, According to Entelo Data

amazon Hq2 (1).pngAmazon recently narrowed down the list of cities in the running for its second headquarters from more than 200 applicants to just 20 finalists. Unsurprisingly, 9 of the 10 largest metro regions in America remain in the running, while the other 11 finalists range from mid-sized cities with burgeoning tech scenes (Denver, Columbus, Pittsburgh, Raleigh, Miami) to smaller cities and areas just outside of major cities that still offer many of the same amenities and talent pools as their central metropoles (Newark, New Jersey, Northern Virginia, Montgomery County, Maryland).



Introducing Entelo Envoy: Combining the Simplicity of Job Boards with the Efficacy of Personalized Outreach

AI is one of the biggest trends for 2018, and nowhere is it more needed than in recruiting talent. The global recruitment market is estimated at $200 billion, and approximately 41 million people in the U.S. alone will be looking for a job or actively recruited this year. But recruitment remains one of the biggest challenges and resource drains for companies across all industries. Today, Entelo aims to change that by making Entelo Envoy generally available to all employers.



Your Favorite Entelo Posts of 2017

2017 was a big year at Entelo. We raised a Series C funding round, announced and launched an innovative new product called Entelo Envoy and made some amazing new hires. Besides those milestones, we published another 90 blog posts over the past year. Some of our favorites covered why referral bonuses don’t really work, how employer branding is the secret sauce to hiring success, and how Entelo is using technology to reduce bias in recruiting

But enough about our favorites. Here are the ten Entelo posts you read the most last year.

10 Key Findings from the 2018 Recruiting Trends Report 

Today Entelo is proud to deliver the 2018 Recruiting Trends Report which summarizes and highlights the strategies, pain points and motivations driving candidate sourcing, engagement and outreach for modern talent teams. Last year, we released our inaugural report which uncovered preliminary hiring trends taking us into 2017. This year, the survey expands to also examine how companies and talent acquisition leaders allocate budgets and prioritize resources around key concerns such as employer branding, diversity efforts and the growing importance of machine learning and artificial intelligence.

After surveying 1,143 talent acquisition professionals from around the world, Entelo is here with key findings that will help recruiters stay ahead of the hiring trends and arm their teams with the right tools to win the war for talent in the year to come.

Here are 10 key findings and how to use them to improve your hiring best practices:



Win the War for Talent in the Age of AI

The adoption of artificial intelligence for recruiting is happening faster than you may think. Over the next few years, the impact of smart technologies will continue to grow, with recent research from IDC indicating that 67% of organizations plan to adopt AI over the next 5 years. This is no surprise considering many companies have already adopted AI and machine learning to increase productivity, automate business processes and uncover new business insights.

Now, everyone else is following suit, with recruiting and talent acquisition poised to join the AI revolution. With the unemployment rate near record lows and the talent crunch deepening for many key professions, this move will give talent acquisition teams the resources and technology they need to find and hire the best possible talent in a crowded and competitive job market.
